Union began their trip after the international break in the best way. Teddy Teuma converted a corner and smashed the ball into the back of the net to make it 1-0. Unfortunately shortly after, our captain was injured and Standard took this opportunity to equalize and that is how it ended at half-time.
In the second period, our players immediately took matters into their own hands and pushed heavily to regain the advantage. Nevertheless, we had to wait until the 70th minute as a corner reached Nieuwkoop to put Union one step closer to victory. This victory was confirmed a few minutes later with a goal from Casper Nielsen’s 1-3 which ensured that we finish in first place at the end of the regular championship phase.
Next Sunday, we play Beerschot at an already sold-out fixture for the final match of the regular season.
